Pastor's Update 

A Welcome Message from Pastor Mark Applewhite:  

WELCOME!  We confess Jesus Christ is the foundation of the Church.  We look up to God.  Humorously, my eyeglasses help me see our vision of sharing our gifts, optimistically.                                           
"Looking up" comes from God's love for us. Love is not blind. Love is the only reality that "sees." (Job 42:5b) The optimist sees our world "hidden" from a point of view that misses the gifts God desires for us to share.

Keep LOOKING UP.  Jesus Christ helps see that we live in the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears that is true. Our church keeps seeing a "higher road," together.  
As the son of a minister, I was born in the mountains of Denver, Colorado. Dad used to help me cross a creek on a single log.  He taught me not to "look down" at the swirling waters below, saying, "Mark, pick a tree on the opposite bank in line with the log. Hold your "head up high."  Look at that tree on the opposite bank and set your sight beyond yourself.

In a world full of negativity and plodder, we set our sights by raising our voices in the music of higher ideas, for "God so loved the world that He gave us the only begotten Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE (Jn. 3:16)."
